After the death of Josep Suñol, an Employees Committee was created to manage the club and ensure that nobody could take it over during the Civil War
As Barça had, in theory, fallen into the hands of the workers, the first decision taken was to ‘confiscate’ the club and Les Corts stadium by forwarding them to the CNT-FAYA union. The commission was made up of five people of unquestionable reputation that had always worked at the service of Fútbol Club Barcelona: Pere Ballarín, Manuel Bassols, Àngel Sánchez, general secretary Rossend Calvet and masseur Àngel Mur. On August 31, 1936, in an extremely cunning move devised by Calvet, three directors were added that had formed part of the board under Sunyol: Francesc Xavier Casals, Agustí Bo and Paulí Carbonell. The former took charge of financial matters, a particularly difficult task considering the club’s funds were almost nonexistent, which made him the de facto president. On November 5, 1937, the Employees Committee was dissolved and a new board was formed. Under the Committee, Barça won one Mediterranean League.
